It's a good game, too easy, though.

Nice game! The 8-bit graphics and four-button control scheme were deceptively simple; a fair amount of skill and strategy are required to pass the later levels. The pixel art looks great, the music is fitting and and the amount of effort that goes into the design of each area is impressive given that there are 10 different stages.

If you develop a sequel (which people are certainly clamoring for), a few more upgrades would be nice. Implementing a magic system would add more depth to the game and force players to mange their mana as well as health.

You have a very unique and interesting concept here, and it was very well executed. Regardless of whether or not your next game is a sequel to this game, I hope it is as fun to play as Eastward Quest.

P.S The use of mirages in the desert area was very clever. I have never seen that before in a game.

overall, it is a solid game, but there are a few things i personally did not like. in some cases, there was no escape, take a fireball/arrow or pit. another point was the delay in leveling up. there where many cases where i leveled and received a lethal blow within a second of each other, naturally, the game counts that as a death. the star power was a nice touch, only complaint is the timing of it at times (i understand it is random) there where times i would get the star, and not a single target for the entire run, others (which i liked) there where a ton of targets to mow through. next point was the "dodge" skill, i never figured out what that was for... it was odd that failure did not come with a price, meaning, i could charge in, kill till i dropped and walk away with all my coins, made upgrade a touch too easy. last note: a story, running to save the princess, running away from the evil oppressive overlord.... ok, enough complaining, time for the positive side. loved the retro feel of the game with the various sprites, added a little depth to the gameplay. the music helped with the feel also of the game. good solid game, with a few tweaks here and there (like longer and adding different weapons) this game would be a game i would return to long after playing it. thank you for reading my rant and hope this directs you to making even better games!

Great game, but i felt it lacked something that could have made it better, perhaps if it was longer or had a more varied difficulty levels due to the fact i could leave my game running whilst i typed this, and still receive a pass but all in all a good game 3.5 stars

This is a fun game music well done and the upgrades do help till the end. At the end of the game its all about how fast you are ad dogging which is cool. Great job and keep up the good work.
